As Huck navigates the Mississippi River by raft with his close companion, the runaway slave Jim, Huck confronts issues relating to the value of human life and friendship. At the end of his journey down the Mississippi River, he and the runaway slave Jim arrive at the epitome of the American dream: freedom UNABRIDGED - ORIGINAL STORY.
